It’s been a while since Javier Piñango released his first instalment
of the I.r.real project on Exp_Net Netlabel (run by himself and Jaime
Munárriz). Since the first of the I.r.real series we have been able to
see a ascent evolution on the language, characteristics and aesthetics
of the solo project by Javier Piñango. If you hear each of the releases
one can grasp this evolution, and the subsequent improvement of each of
the works. Still, this doesn’t mean that the first ones weren’t good
enough, just an evolution, that seen in perspective it can be considered
as a tremendous achievement.
So after approaching the “I.r.real” issue from various points of
views until the latest “I.r.real Metal Music”, here we have the “Space
Music” instalment in which Piñango aims to present a very personal
homage to space messaging and transmission systems. As stated by
Transmission and listen ...
I.r.real Space Music is a sound approach to spatial messaging poetic
and mysterious dimension of the act of transmitting and listening ...
I.r.real Space Music explores certain romanticism places, objects and frequencies that are part of this iconography ...
I.r.real Space Music does not play but creates new satellite
transmissions and receptions synth sound inspired by those same messages
that referred to ...
So, here we have this five track album full of extreme and gritty
textures and frequencies, cliffhangers and noise-alike aesthetics. No
doubt that this work process has been achieved by embracing free
improvisation and the gradual inclusion of the Korg MS-20 as a
fundamental part of this project.
A new I.r.real set up, a new opportunity to enjoy one of the finest
and complex projects on noise and experimentation that one can have the
chance to listen to southern from the Pyrenees.
